Hello, I’m Christine O’Brien and my mission in this life is to help you learn to simplify your space and bring peace to your parenting.

As a Certified Simplicity Parenting Coach, KonMari Consultant and Transformational Coach with over twenty years of experience, I coach women to create streamlined home environments that support harmony and connection.

How I Help Mothers

If you dream of a calm and peaceful family home where everything is put away + more time to sit, relax and connect with your children and your partner, you’re in the right place.

Whether you’re an overwhelmed mom, a parent yearning to simplify life and enjoy parenthood more, or a woman who is just looking to feel more in a state of equilibrium, I’m here for you.

I help women rediscover what matters most to them, clear out the clutter that’s causing their overwhelm, let go of the things that are holding them back, and transform into the calm and centered moms they really want to be.

My Story

When I welcomed my baby girl into the world in 2012, I was overwhelmed by the chaos that comes with being a new mom - drowning in dishes, laundry, spit-up and no sleep! I had left my career to become a mom and lost myself completely. My closets were stuffed floor to ceiling with “stuff,” and clutter was spread throughout my house.

I felt trapped, overwhelmed, and had no hope that my life could change for the better.

Then I read Marie Kondo's book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and it sparked a transformation inside of me. I began to choose to keep only the joyful things and - along the journey - learned to keep only the joyful feelings about myself, too. I learned the skills I needed, I became aware of and tamed my inner critic, and I asked for help when I needed it.

If there is one major lesson that I learned through my own journey, it’s this:

When we align our belongings with our values, magic can happen.


Finding my self worth and letting go of fear has made that magic possible. Today, I know my worth. I now know that becoming a mother made me more valuable, rather than less. My closets are now nicely organized, and the doors in our home can be left open when guests are over because I'm no longer ashamed of what’s inside. I now know how to make decisions and let go when it's time.

Since the clutter has been tamed, I have been able to focus on being with my daughter and enjoying her fun, creative and silly energy. I've fallen more in love with my husband, and our mutual appreciation for each other in addition to and having a cleaner, more organized home creates more time and space for romance. Fear no longer holds me back from living the life I want. I have been enjoying expressing my creativity through writing and making art. My relationship to my spirituality has become much stronger because of my experiences choosing joy.

And above all, I have found my true calling in helping fellow moms clear the clutter and connect to themselves, their families and faith.
